I just wanted to tell the Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien how grateful I am that we have him here. I think he is such a positive, strong influence for our church right now. I was just thinking how fortunate we are to have leaders like our current pope and our archbishop. They are both warm and caring men who imitate our Lord in such an effective way. They are also intelligent, and know how to balance the spiritual and real life elements in order to give us sound advice and guidance.
I’ve met the Archbishop at medical conferences a couple of times, and he is always so approachable and friendly.
